MTRoget: Roget's Thesaurus Machine-Translated
Researchers: Gerard de Melo, Gerhard Weikum
MTRoget is a collection of thesauri in different languages, obtained by machine
translating Roget's Thesaurus, the most well-known thesaurus in the
English-speaking world. Rather than relying on a conventional machine translation
engine, a thesaurus-specific translation technique was used.
Translating a thesaurus differs from translating prose in several ways. Most importantly, translators have the choice of omitting words, so an overall higher accuracy is possible. Additionally, some words may be translated to more than one target word.
